Daniela Pascual Esparza.
My background is in urban studies and performance art, and I keep looking for opportunities to create passages between the two. Passages enable movement, relationships: my interest isn’t in merging two disciplines but in finding equivalences between them to question inherited narratives, to rediscover and imagine together other ways of being in the world.
My concerns revolve around space, autonomy and modes of inhabiting, while my artistic practice focuses on establishing and making visible connections between what is seemingly unrelated. I’m exploring performances as ephemeral viewpoints, trying to enable, within a specific context, several ways of perceiving and relating to our bodies and our surroundings. Most of my works are site-oriented, and I’ve been recently working with plants.
I live in Finland since 2017, where I’m currently finishing my thesis for the MA in Live Art and Performance Studies at the University of the Arts Helsinki.
